ok, I admit that creating a quiz that is primarily quantitative isn't really a lovely thing to do when creating it for a bunch of creative types.
It's my quota meeting, numbers oriented sales background coming through. and it's just for fun and in a way more revealing than many memes.
Anyway, a leg up for those who haven't taken it, and have an interest in finding answers - that would be for those type A's out there - I know you. Aside from some guessing which is endemic to this quiz, many of the answers can be deduced from perusing set1, set2, and set3 on flickr. However, guessing is cool too. I must admit I was surprised by some of the answers when I started to count! (Nanci, the excessive use of !! is just for you)
Last night my husband called me outside to experience the "cool" breeze. "cool" being a relative term. It was in the 80's and not 90's. It is with this "cool" weather coming in that my mind is turning to creating something of a fall wardrobe, and I've begun working on a plan and begun creating, on the computer, a "storyboard" ala Rebecca. And it is Fun. Note that a year ago last Spring I pitched most of my summer clothes, and similarly, in the early spring of this year, I ditched most of my winter wardrobe. So I have nada, nothing, (well, I have one pair of black wool slacks, so I'm exagerating a little) to pull out of the closet for when weather gets cool. This was an effort to compel myself to come up with new.
I find that while creating this storyboard, I'm coming up with a rather sarcastic voice on some of the silhouettes and some of what is being touted in the industry as 'fresh and new'. I hope to have the whole storyboard / plan / and blog entry regarding such done by the end of the week.
Meanwhile, I'm loving Project Runway this season. IMO, this is One of the Best blogs out there in blogland reviewing the runway. thanks to Christin, who had a knitblog but doesn't anymore, for the link. I also strongly recommend listening to Tim's take every week on the podcast. He really tells it like he sees it, and I so agree with him, last week Uli got Robbed.
Another of my fav sites is still Dress-a-Day. Go take a look at the dress on the August 25 entry, the copper silk with black dots. I could so see going to lunch in that dress. Or going boutique shopping. Don't you just love it?
And, I'm beginning to think I'm the only stitcher in blogland that is Not enamoured of this design:
I wore peasant dresses, in the early 70's. Don't feel any compulsion at all to go there again.
